Bloomfield Mansion at Villanova Burns
Bloomfield before Wednesdays Fire.
The once beautiful Philadelphia Main Line estate's mansion known as Bloomfield, located at Villanova, in Radnor Township, Pennsylvania suffered a devastating fire on Wednesday. Click HERE for fire coverage. This stately French Chateau style home with landscaping designed by the Olmsted Brothers, was redesigned by famed Philadelphia architect, Horace Trumbauer in 1923. It is featured in the book, American Splendor by Michael C. Kathrens. To see the house with floor plans it can be seen in a preview at Acanthus Press. The house has been for sale recently and views of it with interiors can be seen HERE. Hopefully the fire did not destroy the house entirely, but more will be known tomorrow.
